Alli & Joe....A little unusual!
Alli and Joe are different...and we love different! At the consultation I remember throwing at engagement session ideas and a cemetery shoot has been at the top of my list along with the library shoot we just did. Joe loved the idea from the start and Alli, with her love of skeletons and trench coats said she was game too! We set our sites on Greenwood Cemetery in Downtown Orlando, one of Florida's oldest cemeteries. Since the couple is having a summer wedding I went with our rule of opposites and planned the shoot for winter in Florida. We were hoping for cold weather and lots of browns and tans to work as our backdrop. We actually ended up with temps in the 40's (for Florida that's cold) and we really enjoyed our time with this couple! Alli's gorgeous red hair and Joe's cool guy swag really made everything pop! These shots are just some of the great ones...we did include a series we have of Alli (a former dance team member) who said she was having trouble not doing spirit fingers and cheesy smiles...we worked with her...got her to laugh and she did great the rest of the shoot. Joe...he just showed up :) We paid our respects to the deep history of the cemetery and made sure we followed the rules!
We worked with our frame again (an idea now requested by many couples since our first time using it with Mike and Dawn in August). Each time we use it we try to do a different spin on it...and this one came out great too!!
